chairman and the republican party's 2012 vice presidential nominee paul ryan here for his first live interview since the election. chairman, welcome back to meat meet. >> great to be back with you. >> let's talk about this top priority of the budget battle. it will really mark the beginning of the president's second term. the debt ceiling has been raised, at least temporarily, but there are still big decisions to be made. you specifically said in the last few days that your priority is to make a big down payment on the debt. a debt crisis that you see in this country. >> that's right. >> what do you specifically require? what's the priority? what has the president got to do in your point of view? >> i'll just explain what the speaker said when we passed that bill. our goal is to get cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balancing the budget in a decade. we think the senate ought to offer a budget. they haven't passed a budget in four years, even though we have a law that says we need a budget every year. we haven't seen any solutions offered by the president on how to get the bud
can strike americans in all forms. a sdabt, a storm, illness, or merely outliving our savings. ryan's budget imposes savage cuts to food stamps, children's health insurance, and other mitigations of suffering for the least fortunate. and ryan also voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. by ryan's definition, if the government is rebuilding your destroyed home, you're a taker too. >> look, this is a straw man argument. the president said earlier that we had suspicions about medicare and taking care of the elderly and feeding poor children. when he sets up these straw men, to affix views to add ver sears that they don't have, to win the argument by default, it's not an honest debate. we want to have a safety net. a safety net that's there for the vulnerable, poor, for people who cannot help themselves. but we don't want to have a culture in this country that encouraging more dependency that saps and drains people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> which part of the culture today is doing that? is part of this culture that you even benefited from after yo
term is starting where his first left off, a debt ceiling crisis and paul ryan twisting the facts. the president was quite insistent monday he will not stomach hostage taking nor medicare and social recipients referred to as takers. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> and for those who need a quick campaign 2012 refresher, it was quite obvious to whom that phrase, a nation of takers, was directed at. >> we can become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. we're going to a majority of takers versus makers in america. more takers than makers in society. takers versus makers in america. >> could have been listening to ayn rand then. joining us is democratic congressman charlie rangel of new york. >> good to be back with you. >> congratulations on a new congress. in an interview today paul ryan said those comments of his had nothing whats
on capitol hill. you're seeing paul ryan work on the republicans' budget. so there is that interesting outsider versus insider dynamic going on. >> fascinating. we always say governors are pragmatic, and that seems to be what the divide is right now. i want to bring up something which is fascinating in battleground states. excuse me. republicans in these states, virginia, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, they control the state legislature, they're trying to move legislation that would make it so it's not winner take all in the electoral college. that it's proportional, so that if you have -- you win via the congressional district, which a lot of republicans are saying, well, it means local control, but take virginia, northern virginia would get the same vote as out near tennessee, which has much less population. what is the purpose behind this? >> look, it's all about giving the republicans a significant advantage in these battleground states that they've lost in the past two presidential cycles. your example of virginia, president obama won the state by four percentage points, won it by
ryan hooking up with julio jones. as kaepernick makes it to the ninth start for the niners won a great decision this turned out to be. there is the drive that put the falcons of 17-nothing at all hope seemed to be lost for the san francisco 49ers. as kaepernick finally passing towards reform and davis. and just as if there were going to go to 1/2 point, the falcons put together a drive-in with 80 touchdown with matt ryan, gonzales. 24-14 but the defense holds this scoreless. to bring the niners within three points and david acres who struggled on this his words continue. harbaugh cannot believe it. and they bounce back if they put together of the drive until michael crabtree. fumbles. they start celebrating at the georgia dome the niners come back and score on us. the most to run the ball player. the final score, 28-24 a last-minute comeback. from the team. and fourth down in the red zone. so, they are going to go to the super bowl. they will try to if joined the pittsburgh steelers the only franchise with se6 >> and really fan spirit is high. and as we are still finding people out in
harbaugh super bowl, because it's "way too early," we will talk about new york football. rex ryan having a tough off season so far. he allegedly caused a three-car crash on the night of january 14th when he was trying to beat a red light in a little town known as bethlehem, pennsylvania. the police report said ryan was traveling at a high rate of speed, but the police officers let him off with a written warning. >>> nba, clippers hosting the thunder in a match-up of two of the best teams out west. play of the game, not from the players but the ref -- ow. managed to get back on his feet after he was pegged in the face with the basketball. the referee, derrick richardson, took the blocked shot in the face from jordan, but he got back up, shook it off, stayed in the game. thunder won 109-97. >>> before we go to break, an important programming note. coming up on "morning joe," cleveland indians manager terry francona will be here with a revealing look at his eight years helming the boston red sox. >>> at the top of the hour on "morning joe," we'll talk about the nra and how it's looking to s
and was a key backer of the 2010 health care bill and congressman paul ryan today spelling out what he learned from the re-election. the re-election of president obama, he is speaking at the national review summit and talking about his experience as a vice presidential candidate, he said moving forward the gop has to layout their vision with more specifics and with a broader appeal. meanwhile, this coming week the president will be unveiling the next step in his second term agenda. immigration. he is going to announce his plan to overhaul immigration. joining me now from the white house, kristen, the white house said friday that the president will be doubling down on policies that he has supported in the past. does that mean we probably won't hear anything new tuesday? >> well, we could hear some new proposes as well, craig, but i think that much of what he is going to unveil will be rooted in some of the policies that he is mapping out in the past. of course, this is an issue that president obama has been talking about since 2008, he said that it's one of his great regret that's has not gotte
in williamsburg, we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road, kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 0% chance it passes. >> good, because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night working on this very is
also to be thinking about growth. every time i talk to paul ryan, i say, paul, just don't talk about what we got to do to balance the budget. talk about growth. what can we do to grow the economy? all the entitlement programs like medicare, many of the fixes are really simple. they will affect people in the future, raise the retirement age year or 18 months or two years, you know, control some of the spending on some of the programs, co-pays, and we need to do a better job of explaning simply and directly to the people. we're not talking about e eliminating or cutting the programs. we're talking modifying the programs going forward so the programs will be there in the future. liz: senator, somehow, the american people did not hear the republican side of the debate or grasp the tax cuts were g.o.p. republican tax cuts. they are not owned by the democrats, they are the george w. bush tax cuts. back to raising the retirement age, that scares the american people. i understand that the republicans are talking, you know, openly and honestly about what needs to happen, but if you are going
're the party of small government. americans are confident in the post-paul ryan era that the republican party is the party of small government. and they didn't vote for the republican party in the last election cycle, even with paul ryan on the ticket. and, yes, it's possible that you could, you know, don't nominate mitt romney next time, get a truer conservative and so on and things will be different. ultimately if you look at opinion polls in the last election cycle, barack obama won the election because people thought, you know, he cared about people like us. that's a touchy feely kind of sentiment. it's not a conservative sounding sentiment but it's a sentiment that republican politicians have to deal with and that george w. bush, for all his many flaws, was better at dealing with than any leader of the party has been since. >> it also, though, it's not just brand purity because brand purity is not going to get us to a majority again. we got to be able to explain to middle-class americans, to working class americans, to people who've seen their wages fall over the past five years, how we'
, "politico" just popped up a story about how speaker boehner, with the help of paul ryan, turned around a conference that was ready to go off the next cliff. they wanted to shut down the government. they wanted to default on america's debt. at that williamsburg retreat, he walked them through what the consequences of that was, showed them polling about the blame that they would take for it, let them talk instead of imposing a solution on them. and very calmly, with paul ryan being the key salesman because of his credibility with conservatives, convincing them to go ahead with this three-month extension that joe, you say, is a smart idea. >> it is a smart idea. and this morning, you know, we were talking about chris christie being one of the favorites in 2016. "politico" this morning's going behind the curtain again with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of r
instead of barack obama being sworn in again yesterday, the romney/ryan administration would have done everything they could to overturn roe versus wade. and that means that if there were a vacancy on the supreme court, any romney nominee to the supreme court realistically could be expected to be a surefire bet to vote to overturn that 40-year-old decision. when president obama leaned over to hug the rather fierce but rather small figure of 79-year-old supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg yesterday at the capitol luncheon that was filled with all the washington vips, and president obama had that moment with ruth bader ginsburg, that physical contact, that hug between that particular justice and this particular president was a very real manifestation of the consequences of this election we just had. today outside the supreme court, as they do every year on the anniversary of roe, anti-abortion groups protested, expressing their view that it should be illegal to get an abortion in this country. there were also counter-protests, people and groups supporting the decision defending abo
chat who says paul ryan's budget even while employing fanciful projections didn't balance the budget until 2040. moving that up by 17 years changes the plausible level from level union corn to level unicorn being ridden by santa claus. your thoughts on that? >> there's a larger point. have republicans -- i'm not suggesting they're not embracing austerity anymore, but there's an acknowledgment here. we're talking about there used to be a time they wanted a balanced budget the year after, next year, the year after. i do think there's been a fundamental shift in appreciation and understanding for how you get an economy going. again, though, to me the bigger question goes back to what you talk about getting your caribeanor. we're going to be living with a series of fiscal cliffs, even if in three months from now we get a debt ceiling raiseded, that will be raised for a year, maybe two. that's all we're going to get, and we'll be in the soup and having the same conversation. >> do you think that's true even if -- i mean, this is a pie in the sky scenario. what if the republicans lose the
from new orleans, we should point out, ryan. >> hey, guys. >> hey. >> really "new york times" article about whether -- >> i found it depressing. >> me too. it talks about the end of courtship when a guy would see you and court you and call you. >> actually call you. >> and date. >> i remember being that guy, and i feel like ryan's generation has it a little bit too ease where i. i remember it was up to the guy. we would have to be the one to call the woman, and you would have to use a phone, and you would dial your number, and then your heart would beat. you know? >> i know exactly. >> is somebody going to answer? am i going to get an answering machine? >> if they answer, what do do you? >> you could hang up because there wasn't caller id. >> he could just text, hey, what's happening? >> tell us what you guys think. >> when we wrote "flirtexting, and i wrote it with my best friend. we actually grew up dating in your day and age where we did wait for the phone call, and then we noticed guys were texting us and it transitioned, and we thought this isn't slowing down. it's happening. how
of ayn rand, the patron saint of paul ryan. that's what they spent inauguration day doing. good luck with that. right after the election this year, after insisting publicly over and over again that there was no need to strip union rights in the state of michigan, michigan republicans, surprise, passed a bill doing just that, and governor rick snyder signed it. the whole thing was opened, passed, and shut within a week, never mind what we said before, we're doing it. surprise. michigan is amazing, right? i mean michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this ne
, was basically a direct rebuke to congressman paul ryan, who was mitt romney's running mate. so the republicans have lots to bicker with, lots to single out in the president's inauguration speech, including the president didn't write it with the thinking of this is going to be a reach across the aisle type of message. >> yeah, obviously a very clear choice he made. let me play for you what senator tom coburn just said on "morning joe." >> i think he missed some opportunities to pull the country together, but a lot of his words were good words for the country to hear. i think he missed a big opportunity to require the responsibility of this wonderful freedom we have that's going to require all of us to have some sacrifice. >> he didn't say shared sacrifice, although he did say we must make the hard choices. he talked about reducing the cost of health care, the size of the deficit. the focus, it seemed to me, if there was an overriding theme, it was on equality, including fixing income inequality. how did you see it? >> i mean, the section on deficits, health care, entitlements, was a really fasc
of their brothers and sisters. >> ryan smith writes in the "wall street journal" this morning and he says this. it would be distracting and potentially traumatizing to be forced to be naked in fronting of the opposite sex, particularly when your body has been ravaged by lack of hygiene. in the reverse, it would be painful to witness a member of the opposite sex in such an uncomfortable and awkward position. he's obviously arguing against this. does he have a point? >> you know, i respectfully disagree. i think that in these situations we're talking about highly trained professionals, people who build our strong military because they place the mission first and they're there to fight as a member of a team. all of the other things that differentiate us, make us unique, whether it be gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you're there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my own fi t firsthand experience as well as the many, many people i've had the honor of serving with, whether in training or in a deployed settin
jay-z and paul ryan. i don't know under what circumstances you would ever have those men in the same frame. but jay-z with beyonce, of course, and paul ryan the republican nominee for vice president. this is a live picture of the president proceeding through the capitol. he's headed to a lunch, the traditional lunch proceeding under the great dome of the capitol. the 150th anniversary of the completion of the dome is this year. a dome built during the civil war. a symbol of the unity of the nation. the president's proceeding in to that lunch now. there was a moment that occurred on the west front, just after all of this was wrapped up, after the national anthem was sung, and the president had something to say. and we wanted to show that to you. >> the president taking one last look at this view. he wanted to stop and linger and see it, record it so that he would never forget his last opportunity to look down the national mall toward the washington monument and the lincoln memorial, to see the crowd who came to hear him deliver his inaugural speech. byron pitts is down in that crowd r
bookkeeping a wrong game. do you think that was a repudiation of the paul ryan approach or the tea party approach that focuses on fiscal matters? >> no, i don't think it was at all. i think it was an honest statement that when you're talking washington budget terms, you're committing yourself to a lot of things that not only the public doesn't understand, but it's very misleading. in washington it is a cut when spending goes up but just not as fast as was planned. for the average american family, that is spends goes up more slowly. for the left they say to the public they're cutting spending by trillions and trillions even though spending's going up to get in that jar gone and to use that lingo, bobby jindal is exactly right. we need to make the truth obvious to voters. >> but, governor, there's certainly a lot of soul-searching going on with the republican party and governor jindal's speech last night exemplary feed that. however, you heard speaker john boehner says they triering to annihilate the go. do you think the party itself has to make policy changes in order to recruit and attra
" this morning. ryan smith is a marine infantrymen that served in iraq. he writes about "the reality that awaits women in combat. societal norms are a reality, and their maintenance is important to most members of a society. despite the professionalism of marines, it would be zrakting and traumatizing to be forced to be naked in front of the opposite sex, particularly when your body has been ravaged by lack of hygiene. in the reverse, it would be painful to witness a member of the opposite sex in such an uncomfortable and awkward position. combat effectiveness is based in large part on unit cohesion. the relationships among members of a unit can be irreparably harmed by forcing them to violate societal norms." >> can we have an honest conversation about this? is there a point to be made there? >> first of all, when you're a serviceman like him, his opinion is meaningful whether you agree or disagree. we've got to show him that respect. i'm assuming that once that uniform goes on, the gender lines change. obviously, i've never been in combat. so, look. this is not a black-and-white issue. and one
responsibility of passing a budget. we passed one each of the last two years we've been in the majority the ryan budget laid out a plan how to deal with america's biggest problems, our debt, deficit and ongoing spending. if we don't reform we'll end up bankrupting this country and it is unfair to the next generation not to stop this. it is time for the senate to step up and act. bill: republicans referencing the speech from yesterday with one reference to the deficit. if no debt limit is reached, however, the government could default on its obligations within weeks so watch that story. martha: well, this is an interesting one. pro golfer, phil mickelson, doing a little bit of backpedaling today saying he regrets the public comments he made on the issue of his taxes in california. mickelson said he may move out when he made the original comments, of the state, because all taxes combined end up to more than 60% tax rate. now he is telling fox news contributor jim gray, quote, finances and taxes are a personal matter and i should not have made a opinions of, on them public. i apologize to those who
, virginia, with the house caucus last week when paul ryan feared the party and the more radical elements of the tea party which supported him to some sort of compromise short term, at least, on the debt ceiling. >> was it compromise or just a strategy to move a bigger fight down the road? >> i think it's an indication, a telltale sign about where the republicans are. four years ago, when the president was making that speech, republicans were meeting at night. >> exactly. >> deciding how to defeat him when he won for re-election. they lost that, big time. he had a very robust electoral victory and significant popular vote victory. now the republicans are in disarray, trying to organize their party so they have a future. and they're going to have to deal with the reality of that as well. it is a party that is so broken into a lot of parts on the gop side and there's going to have to be a lot of mending down and more outreach as well. >> couple of key areas. the president has focused on energy independence. people close to him say that could be an unlikely bipartisan legacy for president ob
